The huge fleet of buses drives down to various parts of the city to bring the children. Teachers too travel by these buses to ensure the safety of the children in transit. On alighting the students are escorted to their respective classrooms by the ushers specifically appointed for this purpose. Elaborate security arrangements have been made in the school premises to ensure the safety of every child.
Infirmary with a well trained nurse and doctor on call are available.
With Vikas School’s ‘Rules of Safety and Always Be Careful Program,’ we have introduced many innovative and new methods of safety measures in the school premise. Safety measures like fire evacuation drill, evacuation plan, awareness of fire exits and emergency assembly signs, first aiders help the child to take the first step towards safety precautions.
The school is under CCTV surveillance which records all the movement of a student and with security sentry at the gate. The School does not allow any unsupervised interactions between visitors and children.
Safety in the bus is specified with specified speed governors, with fire extinguishers and a first aid box where the children are looked after by a trained attendant.
At Vikas School, the safety and security of children is of utmost need and importance as they believe in the old saying of ‘Precaution is better than cure’ — and a child needs a lot of safety and security in school to help him/her to build a better future for them.
